By Charles Edward Russell. T Millbank, London, on the Middlesex side of the Thames, half a mile above the Parliament Buildings, is a group of substantial flat houses built and owned by the London County Council. The architecture is good, air and light are provided for, the courts between are paved with asphalt, everything is clean, well-ordered, quiet, eminently respectable. In front is a little strip of -park where the children play. On Sunday, July 2nd, at noon, there came through one of the asphalt courts a young man, a little boy ana wl young woman carrying a baby. They were dreadful to look upon, all of them clothed in dropping rags, emaciated, tallowy, and unclean. The woman nad a vacant face and next to no chin; the man had sloping shoulders, one higher than the other, and stooped. The boy reproduced and exaggerated the physical defects of the man and the woman. The man slowly led the way down the court, singing. I have never known a thing more grotesque nd horrible. He was singing "Rock of Ages," not to the inappropriate air of Abt's to which it is usually sung in America, but to the tune used in the hurches of England. It was not that his voice was feeble, or wailing, or pathetic. What struck every attentive listener with a kind of horror was that it was. not the voice of a human being. They walked very slowly down the court and looked up at the windows. Two or three were opened and some halfpence were thrown out, perhaps five. And thus, singing In this frightful fashion, they took their rags and their mis ery out of sight. . They were the problem of London, those four, and they stood before the test answer that London has yet been able to make. on the disagreeing was not accomplished witjioutrniany words and votes. It was developed at once however, that there were votes en ough to carry out. the programme of the leaders. Then followed 40 minutes of fiery speeches, some of which provoked the amusement of the large attendance of members and the crowded "galleries. Then came the final vote on the adoption of the rule, which 175 members approved and 156, opposed. Messrs. Hamilton of Michigan;' Brick, of Indiana, and Moon, of Tennesse, were appoined the conferees on the part of the House. The features of the debate were remarks by J. Adam Bede, of Min nesota, during which he told of his approval of the President, particular ly because he had given his daughter in marriage to a member of the House of Representatives and not to a degeurate prince or to a repre sentative of "that bouse of deten- uuii at i lie uuici cuu iv. vufsnui.

How ells. kOW often, with those whose loss has stricken us to the heart, do we go back, to a point where if we had dons this or not done that, it seems that they might have lived! For a while the utter most bitterness of death dwells in that vain fancy, but after another while that too passes, and ihe sorrow that dreams of be ing joy resigns itself to be sorrow on the terms of the final ob livion which awaits every human emotion. It is an intoler able thought from which the mind flies again to those lighter interests of states and peoples whose griefs are general, and have not the poignancy of personal anguish. One thinks, for instance, of the Spanish invasions of Mexi co and Peru, and muses upon the possibilities of developed Aztec and Inca civilizations which seemed in their flower when Cortes and Pizarro struck them down. It is not too bold to imagine a socialistic state of the supreme type which has been the ideal of generous minds ever since Sir Thomas Ulore invented Utopia developing from the communistic polity which the Peru vians had carried so far. All along the shores of , the vast ocean of accom plished fact lie the wrecks of thrones, principalities, and . powers, which we might similarly reconstitute for a happier destiny. Everywhere those coasts are strewn with broken and dismantled ships of state in which the fancy la- -iioriously repairs and" sets sail for the tranquil haven of their departure, there to trim and provision them for a new and prosperous venture into the future "which has so long been the past. Harper's Magazine. sit e&hsm in Acting. 13 v Henry Miller. HE degree in which an actor should yield himself to the emotions hfi i?5 nOrt.M vitnsr Tins hTI H?cr11QGOr1 from mamr nnlnto rt irtem I As M. Coquelin is the high priest of the doctrine that emotion t 1 t a, . . ur ieeiing snouia never enter into the work of an actor, his lack of effect in simulating pathos militates against him and his belief, no matter how great may toe one's admiration for his re markable technique. Again, one hears of a player who declares that he gives himself up entirely to the part, forgetting all elsabut the situa tions and conditions in which the drama places him. I trust it will not seem presumptuous to suggest that this is largely a delusion, for there are players whose emotions lie so far beneath the surface that nothing shoit of tremen dous concentration of mind and imagination can arouse them. This kind of actor, tnougn, Dy sneer lorce or the endeavor needful to arouse a tempera mental response, runs a risk of becoming set in method and deficient in plasti city of expression. To my mind- the best results are brought about by the conformation of a iflraal consciousness working in harmony, allied to a well-developed power of expression mrougu voice, iace ana ; action, tnese faculties being so com pletely under control, and yet so responsive, that they take on without stress -or strain iu quality ux every cnanging mooa ana leeiing.

He outlined New England's attitude to-M-ard the rate bill and said that with the milea2? system established nil the manufacturers in the New England States would ge destroyed. Mr. Lodge entered upon a plea in support of the various provisions of his amendment, first taking up the distribution of the commissioners throughout the country on the basis of the judicial circuits, when he was interrupted by Mr. Tillman, who ob jected to this method of selection be cause of the importance of the com mission, and Mr. Foraker agreed with him, saying that location should not be considered in filling the commis sion. "If," he said, "we are going to have a rate-making commission, I shall insist upon the confining of the number to three and that all be res idents of "Washington and free from prejudice." As going to show how location might influence action by commissioners, he cited a case in which Mr. Clements, a member of the commission had written an opinion favorable to Rome, Ga., his own city7 as compared with Atlanta, in the maximum rate case. $1,480,000 to Jamestown. The House Committee on industrial arts and expositions decidod to re commend a total appropriation of $1,4SO,000' for the Jamestown Expo sition. Of this sum $285,000 is a direct appropriation. The exposition sought a direct appropriation to $1, 000,000. For the construction of a pier at the exposition grounds $400,000 was approved, and other items were agreed upon as follows: Government buildings, $250,000; government exhibits, $200,000; ren dezvous for army and naval officers, $80,000; rendezvous for enlisted men, $100,000 ; ; transportation for soldiers and arms, $100,000; for an exhibit of negro development, $100,000. The proposed appropriation of $40, 000 sought for building a pier at JamestoVn Island and improving the islands was referred to a sub-committee, which will investigate what rights the government will have on the island, which is owned chiefly by private -parties. In case the gov- . i. j, . i -, eminent can improve ine lsiana on satisfactory terms, this appropriation doubtless will be agreed upon. Pass Fortification Bill. For Icing Station at Maxton.
